Final Fantasy XIV ends its simultaneous logouts
A little under two weeks ago, Final Fantasy XIV
announced that the game would log everyone off of the servers once per day
. Players were up in arms almost immediately about the measure, emphatically stating that it would have no effect and would punish those trying to play the game. As of today, the developers have announced that the measure will no longer be in place
, with the developers continuing to monitor the situation and making sure it doesn’t become necessary again.
So why the change? Well, because it worked; people are logging on and off normally and queue times are moving appropriately, thus removing the previous reason to kick people off of the server. The previous post addressed the original reasons behind the measures, but as queue times on even the most populated servers seem to have been reduced significantly, it looks like it’s back to normal operations in Eorzea once again.
